Clitoral Hood Reduction

Clitoral hood reduction is often referred to as clitoral hoodectomy. It is a procedure aimed at reducing the size of the clitoral hood to expose more of the clitoris. This surgery can enhance sexual satisfaction and increase comfort. It also has aesthetic benefits.

We understand the sensitive nature of this surgery at the Women’s Wellness Institute of Dallas. That’s why we work hard to provide a discreet, supportive, and welcoming environment.

Our skilled team is led by Dr. Wesley Anne Brady, a board-certified gynecologic surgeon and full fellow of the American Board of Obstetricians and Gynecologists. She is an expert in cosmetic gynecology who ensures each procedure is tailored to meet her patient’s needs and goals.

What Are the Benefits of a Clitoral Hoodectomy?

Clitoral hood reduction offers several advantages. Primarily, it enhances sexual pleasure by increasing the clitoris's exposure. Increasing exposure can increase sensitivity.

This surgery can also help relieve physical discomfort and irritation that some women experience due to excess tissue. Excess tissue in this area can rub against clothing.

Aesthetic improvements are another significant benefit. Many women feel more confident and comfortable with their bodies post-treatment.

What to Expect Before, During, and After Your Procedure

We are committed to patient education at the Women’s Wellness Institute of Dallas. We want you to be fully informed when it comes to your upcoming procedure. Here is a breakdown of what you can expect before, during, and after clitoral hood reduction.

Before the Procedure

You'll meet with Dr. Brady before your clitoral hood reduction to discuss your goals and any questions you might have. You will talk about the most appropriate surgical plan including incision placement. This personalized approach helps her ensure the results meet your expectations.

During the Procedure

The surgery typically lasts about an hour. You will be under local or general anesthesia to minimize discomfort. 

Dr. Brady uses the latest techniques to reduce recovery time and improve aesthetic outcomes. She does not alter or disturb the clitoris or the clitoral nerves.

After the Procedure

After your clitoral hoodectomy, recovery generally involves minimal discomfort. Patients can manage any pain easily with over-the-counter medications. 

Patients can return to many normal activities within a week. However, you may need to wait four to six weeks before resuming strenuous exercise and sexual activity. We will provide comprehensive aftercare instructions to ensure a smooth and satisfactory recovery.


Who Is a Good Candidate?

Ideal candidates for clitoral hood reduction typically experience physical discomfort or desire aesthetic enhancement in the genital area. A consultation with Dr. Brady can help determine if this treatment is right for you.

How Do I Prepare for the Surgery?

Preparation involves abstaining from smoking and avoiding certain medications, such as blood thinners. Dr. Brady will review your current medications and tell you which ones to stop taking.

You should also ensure you have a comfortable recovery space at home. Additionally, you may need to request time off work or clear your social schedule to accommodate the short recovery.

Are There Any Risks?

Clitoral hoodectomy is considered safe and effective. As with any surgery, risks include infection, bleeding, and scarring. However, Dr. Brady uses advanced techniques to minimize these risks and ensure the best possible outcome.

What Is the Average Recovery Time?

Most patients typically return to work and light activities within a week. A full return to activity is expected within four to six weeks. Swelling may persist for several months. This timing may vary if other vaginal procedures were performed.

What Long-Term Outcomes Can I Expect?

Long-term outcomes usually include increased comfort and enhanced sexual pleasure. The results are meant to be permanent, and patient satisfaction is our top priority.
